Adverse Possession Claims

Adverse possession of property occurs when someone who is not the legal owner becomes the owner after occupying the property over the passage of time. This applies to properties owned by commercial entities as well as individual landlords.

A person may become entitled to adverse possession claims if they can prove they have actually been in occupation for a specific period of time or if they had the intention to possess the property during their occupation. The legal proprietor may oppose their property becoming adversely possessed if an application for adverse possession is made.

It is important to keep a check on all properties owned by your organisation as properties left vacant are vulnerable to being occupied by squatters.

We advise clients on all matters of adverse possession claims in a timely and efficient manner to ensure that their legal entitlements are not hindered.

I appointed Saracens to act for me on varying legal matters. Being an overseas client, I need solicitors who I can trust and who know what they were doing and are able to work to my timescales.
